from Wicked
music & lyrics by Stephen Schwartz


Did that really just happen? Have I actually understood?
This weird quirk I've tried to suppress or hide
Is a talent that could help me meet the Wizard
If I make good. So I'll make good

When I meet the Wizard, Once I prove my worth,
And then I'll meet the Wizard. What I've waited for since...since birth!
And with all his Wizard wisdom, by my looks, he won't be blinded
Do you think the Wizard is dumb? Or, like Munchkins, so small-minded? No!
He'll say to me, "I see who you truly are - A girl on whom I can rely!"
And that's how we'll begin. The Wizard and I!

Once I'm with the Wizard my whole life will change
'Cuz once you're with the Wizard, no one thinks you're strange!
No father is not proud of you, no sister acts ashamed
And all of Oz has to love you when by the Wizard, you're acclaimed
And this gift or this curse, I have inside
Maybe at last, I'll know why
When we are hand in hand -The Wizard and I!

And one day, he'll say to me, "Elphaba, A girl who is so superior,
Shouldn't a girl who's so good inside have a matching exterior?
And since folks here to an absurd degree, seem fixated on your verdigris
Would it be all right by you, if I de-greenified you?"

And though of course, That's not important to me
"All right, why not?" I'll reply. Oh, what a pair we'll be! The Wizard and I;
Yes, what a pair we'll be
The Wizard and...

Unlimited...My future is unlimited
And I've just had a vision Almost like a prophecy
I know - it sounds truly crazy. And true, the vision's hazy
But I swear, someday there'll be a celebration throughout Oz
That's all to do with me!

And I'll stand there with the Wizard. Feeling things I've never felt
And though I'd never show it, I'd be so happy, I could melt!
And so it will be For the rest of my life,
And I'll want nothing else till I die
Held in such high esteem. When people see me, they will scream
For half of Oz's favorite team; The Wizard And I!
